||Well, I have stuck to my guns for the past two weeks.  This

||contractor to the
||client, introduced them, and he walked out with a contract.  
||That was of
||course two projects ago, and he seems to have forgotten how 
||he got where he
||is.  I just found out today that the client will no longer be 
||needing my
||assistance from now on.  I guess that is a polite way of 
||saying you are
||fired, after this job of course.
